No opinion of CEO

Pros

Autonomy and a lot of good learning (you do all the job functions), not much supervision you make your own success (Interlake is a small system integrator)

Cons

Low pay, high health care premiums, travel is high to locations unknown and unpredictable, sales margins are unrealistic engineers must work within predefined profit goals for a project

Advice to Management

Review sales force quotes for profit margin projections, add more technical sales personnel, develope a advancement plan, nobody was promoted during my tenure

    I have been working at Interlake Mecalux part-time

    Pros

    The people are decent people. The working hours are ok. The benefits would be decent if I was full time.

    Cons

    Takes too long to go from temp to full time. You must have 720 hours and I've been there for over a year. Frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Take some leadership classes and learn how to be leaders instead of bosses. Safety shouldn't just be a talking point.

    I worked at Interlake Mecalux full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not applicable to this company

    Cons

    I was a sales person, the treatment of my customers was so bad it gave me health problems, my blood pressure and heart rate has generally been Olympic caliber. After just a few months working here I was sent home from my doctor and told to come back on the weekend because my blood pressure was so high, I am under 30 years old by the way. They betray customers and their own sales people, I had to apologize to my customers because promised orders never showed up or came with the wrong parts. The company doesn't care. I am gone now and my health is back to normal, awful company, I make more money now and have less stress. Never ever under any circumstance accept a position here.

    Advice to Management

    Your morals make the difference between you and even a mediocre company irreconcilable.
